Please tell us about your work in peace education. / Cuéntenos sobre su trabajo en la educación para la paz.

My interests include the philosophical foundations of peace education. I am interested in exploring the interface between ethics, political philosophy and educational theory, including the theory and practice of an education for peace. I am also interested in the exploration of consciousness as self-reflective and the various ways that consciousness can be experienced and developed.

Start in the field & motivations / Inicio en este campo y motivaciones

Both my study and practice of peace education has its origins in the practice of meditation as a means for the expansion of consciousness. My core motivating belief is that the consciousness and the internal moral, intellectual, and spiritual capacities necessary for the pursuit of peace and justice in the world can be developed through specific educational practices. I am devoted to understanding, developing, and implementing those practices.
